Equipment and Resources

Biomedical Science

York St John University secured £120,000 of government funding to support the building and purchase of equipment for the new Biomedical Science laboratories. The government funding aimed at supporting new developments in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subject was released to ensure that higher education providers are able to deliver science and technology based degree programmes that produce graduates with excellent employability skills. The STEM funding has been used to equip the brand new bespoke Biomedical Science laboratories, which has allowed the purchase of high specification equipment, including a microtome, flourescence microscope, real time PCR and an advanced image cytometer (Chemotec NucleoCounter NC-3000) to enable our students to utilise state of the art equipment to improve their laboratory skills and employability. Our equipment can also be used for training of local practitioners as part of their CPD activity and to facilitate the research of the academic staff supporting the Biomedical Science programme.
